During remarks at the release of the 2017 Country Reports on Human Rights Practices, Acting Secretary of State John J. Sullivan said, “Promoting human rights and the idea that every person has inherent dignity is a core element of this administration’s foreign policy. It also strengthens U.S. national security by fostering greater peace, stability, and prosperity around the world.

They help our government and others formulate policies and encourage both friends and foes to respect the dignity of all individuals without discrimination” (4/20).
